|2 Kings 22:15-20 |
15 And she said to them, "Thus says the LORD God of Israel, Tell the man who sent you to me,
16 Thus says the LORD, 'Behold, I will bring disaster upon this place and upon its inhabitants, according to everything that is written in the book that the king of Judah has read.
17 Because they have forsaken me and have burned incense to other gods, provoking me to anger with all the works of their hands, therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place and shall not be quenched.'
18 But to the king of Judah who sent you to inquire of the LORD, say this to him, 'Thus says the LORD God of Israel, regarding the words that you have heard:
19 Because your heart was tender and you have humbled yourself before the LORD when you heard what I spoke against this place and against its inhabitants, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and you have torn your clothes and wept before me, I also have heard you, says the LORD.
20 Behold therefore, I will gather you to your forefathers, and you shall be taken to your grave in peace, and your eyes shall not see all the disaster that I will bring upon this place." So they brought back word the king.
